Jem & The Holograms Designer Collection Retro T-Shirts

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

Old episodes of Jem & The Holograms are among my favorite thing to have playing while I’m sewing or working, they’re just so fantastic and all of the colors and fashions are incredibly bright and fun!  The characters all have BIG, COLORFUL HAIR and vibrant makeup, so of course it is among my favorite things lol!!

A designer collection of Jem & The Holograms clothing and accessories is available from designer boutique ShopBop – today I’ll be featuring a handful of the cool t-shirts that they have!

Jem & The Holograms Designer Collection Retro T-Shirts (1)

Jem and the Holograms Wildfox Dance Club Magic Tee

The faded pastel colors of this one make it especially retro
and befitting of Jem’s aesthetic!!  Probably the most fairy-kei workable item
in today’s roundup~

Jem and the Holograms Wildfox Showtime Tank

Okay, this is the other cute pastel item today~
I like this one because it shows both Jerrica and Jem,
and that Jem’s awesome pink hair is drawn so detailed and curly!!

Jem and the Holograms Wildfox Misfits Oversized Sweatshirt

If you like the Misfits and think their songs are better,
perhaps you would be a bigger fan of this big, comfy sweater!

Jem and the Holograms Wildfox Glamour Glitter Fashion & Fame Sweatshirt

A simpler design that simply states the cartoon’s tagline.
Kind of a stylish, subtle, artsy way to wear the fact that you are a fan.

Jem and the Holograms YARNZ Cashmere Scarf

There are better pictures of this on the linked page exampling how this looks worn as a scarf –
I just picked this pic as it shows the design the most clearly!
Honestly I would wear a funky design like this as an allover print on a t-shirt.

Jem and the Holograms Tamara Mellon Leather Fringe Skirt

This is so funky!!  Imagine walking while wearing this
and all of the fringe swaying – how cool!!
This is one of those examples of how my mind gets blown
seeing how much people are willing to spend on designer labels…
The price of this skirt is beyond anything I could imagine spending on myself… oAo

Beautiful Princess Kurhn Dolls

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Maybe this name isn’t new to serious doll collectors, but for me, learning about Kurhn dolls was really exciting because I got to browse all of these beautiful princess dolls that I have never seen before!!  And their faces are so preciously sweet – it’s redundant to call a doll “doll-eyed”, isn’t it?  But they really do have the sweetest, clearest eyes!

Blue & Pink Rose Lace Princess Kurhn Doll

Ahhh oh my gossssh this baby blue + baby pink is my favorite color combination!!
And there are dainty roses and bows around her collar~
This is maybe the prettiest doll I’ve ever seen! *o*

Pink Lolita Nightgown with Bonnet and Bunny Kurhn Doll

This dolly’s sweet lace all over makes her extra elegant~
Gosh, that is a lavish nightgown to sleep in!

I love the huge frilly bonnets that all of these dolls wear, hehe.

Pink Fur-Trimmed Stylish Princess Kurhn Doll

The little pillbox hat and satin purse make this princess look a bit more modern!
The fur trim over her dress looks so soft and fluffyyyyyyyyyy~

Minty-Haired Pink Princess Kurhn Doll

Oh my gosh this doll’s hair looks like MERMAID HAIR!!!
And with that brilliantly rosy pink dress –
there’s an anime character with this coloration, isn’t there?
She looks so much like a magical girl from the Creamy Mami era,
maybe I’m thinking of some combination of Persia the Fairy or Magical Emi!

Kawaii Soft Chouchou Plushies and Accessories

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

After a bout of cold, grey days, it feels really good to browse soft and cuddly plushes and blankets and stuff like these!!  Ohhhh I just want to wrap up in them and have hot chocolate!!

Hello Kitty Pastel Soft Backpack (4 Colors)

The other colors that this soft plush backpack comes in
have different fruit motifs!!
Big, soft backpacks like this can hold a lot more goodies inside
than you’d think – I carried around a plush Hello Kitty-shaped
backpack during a beach trip once and it held EVERYTHING
from my purse. o_o

Hamtaro or Bijou Giant Stuffed Plush

Ahhhh Hamtaro is SOOO CUUTE!!
And Bijou’s little ponytails are so precious!

This one looks so dreamy and extra soft!!
Now THIS is the kind of blankie I am talking about
when I say I want to cuddle up and sip hot chocolate.

Soft Snuggly Paw Mittens

I wouldn’t be able to wear these in Winter,
because the tips of my fingers are always the first to go freezing,
but in Autumn these would be adorable additions to a snuggly outfit!!
They come in other colors!!  I like the creamy and brown one!!

My Melody, Kuromi, Rilakkuma, or Kutusita Nyanko Stuff Pillow Blankets

This selection of Sanrio and San-X character pillows actually open up
into blankets, just like the sheepy blanket earlier in this roundup!!
And the designs on them are really cute – click through
and check them out to see how they look unfolded~

Barbie I Can Be…Pet Vet

Okay, no lie, I went for this Barbie because I love her poofy curly hair!
This reminds me a lot of a Doctor Barbie that I had from the 90s.
That floral jacket she is wearing is rockin’, too.

Barbie Life in the Dreamhouse Midge Doll

The Barbie Life in the Dreamhouse series is super endearingly charming!
Midge returned from my Mom’s days of playing with Barbies
on the show one day and has resurfaced as a doll and character.
That’s seriously so cool!

Barbie in Rock ‘N Royals Singing Courtney Doll

Okay, this doll has pink hair so it is automatically my favorite.
Rock ‘n Royals is a recent Barbie movie addition.
I should probably watch it sometime,
watching those movies is a guilty pleasure of mine!

This is like the kind of Barbie I would get
